Shahid Kapoor Talks Parenthood: "Mom And Dad, Sorry For All Those Times I Was A Prick"

Recently, 'Kabir Singh' actor Shahid Kapoor talks parenthood, sharing that he had been self-oriented before becoming a father.

Parenthood can make an ordinary man turn into a storyteller, a singer, a superhero for his kids. Our favorite actor, Shahid Kapoor, is no exception when it comes to having faith in that belief. After embracing fatherhood, he realized how important his parents are in his life.

Shahid Kapoor got married to Mira Rajput Kapoor in July 2015 and ever since they officially made it official, the two have changed the original concept of arranged marriages. Mira came as the missing piece that filled the void existing in his heart and home.

In a recent interview with Filmfare magazine, the Kabir Singh actor revealed the changes his life has witnessed after he became a parent.

"I was pretty self-oriented till I became a parent. Though I believed I was selfless. But when I became a parent, I realized I was actually damn selfish," said Shahid.


He further shared, "Now I don’t put myself first. You end up thinking about your kids and family first. Sometimes it’s nice. Sometimes it’s frustrating because you do need to put yourself first at times. Every individual needs to have their own breathing space. I struggle with it.

I respect my parents a lot more today than I did before I was a parent. Now I understand what all they did for me. I don’t know if it’s too late for me to apologize but through Filmfare, I say, ‘Mom and dad, sorry for all those times I was a prick’."


In an interaction with the Filmfare magazine last month, Shahid had talked about his relationship with his wife, Mira and how it has evolved with time. The actor had stated,

"No one should live in an illusion that everything’s set. When you believe everything is on autopilot, it all falls apart. You’ve got to work every day at everything. Whether it’s marriage, parenting, career or even your relationship with your parents. I struggle with all of them.

I struggle at maintaining my friendships. I’m terrible at maintaining long-distance relationships. I struggle at dividing my time between my wife, my children and work. My wife feels she isn’t a priority. I feel guilty about not giving enough time to myself. Many a time I tell my family, ‘Guys, let me work also sometimes’."

Shahid Kapoor had also revealed how subtle Mira is regarding managing their marriage and home. The actor had shared,

"Marriage is like a book. Mira’s my biggest reality because we share our lives together. In the past four years, she’s constantly said, “Shahid, when your films didn’t work, I used to wonder what was going on? I’ve been part of the struggle too for four years. I’ve been there with you through your highs and lows. Now I know.”

There’s a partnership, there a sense of achieving together. She got married so young, had two kids and had to figure out how to deal with that when she was just stepping out of being a kid herself. She must have had her dreams and desires but she pushed those aside."

Last month, Mira Rajput had spoken of her age difference between her and her husband in a talk with Vogue. She said, "His fluidity towards life is another quality I love. It’s helped me ease up a lot. He’s lived longer, so if anything, I can benefit from his experience, and he can benefit from my fresh perspective."

As we can see, the lovebirds Shahid and Mira still manage to keep an admirable relationship after getting married. We all hope the two will always be happy and keep being goals for fans and admirers.
